Rick Mercer at the Atlantic Police Academy

leave a comment »

You’d be hard put to find someone in Canada who hasn’t heard of Rick Mercer. He’s likely the brightest start in the CBC’s firmament, and he’s certainly the most ubiquitous. So when he came to the Atlantic Police Academy last week to shoot a segment for the Rick Mercer Report, staff and students alike were excited.

It’s probably the same wherever he goes. As soon as he walks into the room, heads turn and people either sneak furtive glances at him or else openly gawk, all the while with expectant smiles. They’re waiting for him to say something funny. But Mercer’s all business as he and his crew prepare for the shoot. Well, perhaps not all business!

The segment will air on Tuesday, January 31st at 8 p.m. on CBC, and then on Friday, February 3rd at 8:30 p.m.; as well as on line at youtube.com/mercerreport.
